STAR WARS: JEDI FALLEN ORDER – DARK TEMPLE #5 Review
Summary: The battle on Ontotho is coming to a head, Padawan Cere Junda makes a bold bid to make peace with Daa Corporation’s army. It does seem to work for a while, but nothing is going to stop this war. Sometimes just have to stand and fight.

Even though this is the last of this series, I would still recommend it as it gets straight into the action with explosions on the first panel and the story is interesting enough that you would go back to the rest of the series to see how it got to this point. Even though it says it includes characters from the Fallen Order video game you don’t really need to know that story to enjoy it.
The Inquistors are the Jedi hunters that took over from Vader for looking for the remaining remnants of them after Emperor Palpatine has expressly forbidden Vader from doing so and has had to punish him several times as he can’t let it go. We don’t get to see them much in this entry of the story but I would like to find more about them.
Mace Windu makes a welcome return here but doesn’t really do that much as the battle is too far gone by this point.
Not too sure where in the timeline this story is set, everything in the Star Wars universe is dated by the first Battle of Yavin (destruction of the first Death Star) so goes BBY/ABY. Disney threw the extended universe in the bin when they took over so all the new stories line up with the films better, but it is still worthwhile to go back to the older stories sometimes.
I would recommend this release if you were already a fan of the series or the video game and wanted more of the same characters.
